This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

My first proposal

The time has come, after 6 months in Liberia, for me to try to write my first proposal for fundraising. I am applying for $250,000 from the World Bank, to rebuild 24 bridges and rehabilitate 24 wells on an 88 km stretch of neglected highway in rural Nimba County and River Cess County. If funded, the project will only run for 8 weeks but will provide much needed employment for 210 labourers and will provide access to nearly 30 villages and small towns that are otherwise completely isolated for nearly 4 months during the rainy season, when the malnutrition, illness and death rate rise considerably. Please pray with me that this proposal is successful. Olly
